This pack includes activities to teach or review the pattern rules for plural nouns. It includes posters for each pattern, an interactive notebook activity, 3 sets of sorting cards with 24 words each and follow-up worksheets.
I use these activities in two ways:
As a large group activity. I review the pattern rules for making a singular noun a plural noun using the posters. I place one set of word cards around the room and have students walk around in pairs with a clipboard and answering sheet. I then project the answer sheet on to my whiteboard and have students record their answers on the whiteboard and we check their work. Then we create their interactive note. They glue in the envelopes and we record 3 sets of sample words under each envelope. Ex. hug – hugs family – families
I use the other two word card sets as a center activity during guide reading rotations. Students work together but each student records the answer on their own sheet. I may re-use the first set for my low group to ensure success.
I print the word cards on cardstock with color ink. Laminating the cards will of course improve their durability.
After students complete the sorting activity I give them one (or more) of the follow-up worksheets. The worksheets can also be used for early finishers or additional practice.
